Title: Awakening Foster Kelly
Author: Cara Rosalie Olsen
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Summary: If only a pile of wayward curls and the inability to stay on her feet were seventeen year-old Foster Kelly’s most pressing concerns. Unfortunately, stubborn hair and clumsiness are just the tip of it. At the age of five when Foster is told, “You don’t belong here,” it was only a mistake, but the result is one broken heart. These four carelessly spoken words have shaped and shadowed Foster, and now—a senior at Shorecliffs High-school—she seeks the wallflower’s existence, denying herself the most casual of friendships, much too afraid that someone will see what she believes is certain: she does not belong anywhere—or with anyone.
This was a good YA contemporary read that could have been great with a lot of editing. Usually editing doesn't affect my reviews unless it interferes with the readability if the story like it did in this book. There were way too many inconsistencies and the book could have been shortened a lot. I kept losing interest in the story, not because it wasn't good but because it basically folowed the main character Foster from the time she woke up to the time she went to bed everyday, to what felt like a whole week for me. I just found the book to be very jumpy. Also the ending was rather confusing, like it get it but it was just to far from reality for me to connect with or even fathom happening.
With serious editing I feel like this could have been an amazing book. Right now it still feels likes it's a WIP (work in progress) with good bones.
